What is a nickname? 

The Dictionary Definition: 

nick·name 

/ˈnikˌnām/ 

noun 

  1. a familiar or humorous name given to a person or thing instead of or as well as the real name.

Author’s definition: Any name apart from your actual parent-given name that others can call you. I, for example, go by, “Ad” which is short for Adam. 

There are many badass nicknames that you can choose from. I’ve included a comprehensive list below. But don’t forget that you can come up with your own as well. If you want a nickname, then look no further than this list.

Tips to Find a Perfect Nickname

There are many ways to find the perfect nickname for you. I hope that the suggestions above at least guide you in the right direction. But in case they don’t, here is a list of tips for you to find the perfect nickname just for you.

1. What is my personality? How could I fit my personality with a nickname?

2. Where am I from? Did I move? Could I call myself by my city name (e.g., “Cali”)

3. What am I good at? What could I call myself that pertains to the fact that I’m good at something?

4. The best tip I have for you is to find a nickname that you can use around ALL of your friends. A universal nickname is the best idea since sliced bread because you’ll be able to use it anywhere

The Takeaways

The best names come from those who know us best. Or by us exclusively. I would talk to your friends and loved ones or have a brainstorming session to find the perfect badass nickname. There are many to choose from in the lists above, or, as I said before, you can pick your own.

I hope you found something worthwhile in this guide, and I hope I’ve helped you at least narrow down the nickname you want to eventually go by.

This is Adam, aka “Ad,” signing out.
